I would like to configure auto update some packages using unattended-upgrades. But I couldn't find the why to specific only the packages I want. The /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/50unattended-upgrades file have a Blacklist and Allow-Origin option which update all packages.

Is there any way to update only needed packages.


I think you could make a cron job of command apt-get install pkg where pkg is the package you want to update.

If you want to upgrade all packages in a certain repository, see here.
